The color is a very dark brown, lighter brown creeping in at the edges. A tan head reaches one finger and displays good retention. It sticks around as a tight, creamy foam for as long as there's beer in the glass. Some mixture of patchy and sticky lacing with legs remains.
Smoke is in moderation on the nose, and with it comes a slightly woody note along with a very gently tangy hint, a bit of chalkiness, a spicy nip, and some dark fruits. Not too much changes in the flavor, with the sweetness becoming more distinctive and strong and turning char into a tangy/biting sort of finish. The overall character of this beer makes it impossible to identify as a saison. When a little bit of a yeasty and earthy element is discovered underneath, it at least becomes identifiable as a possibility.
The body is adequate at a solid medium. A crisp bite starts it off and remains strong, though it overtakes the smoothness that comes out a bit. The chalky dryness hits the palate pretty hard. With the tang, the char and the wood, the feel is extremely dry all the way.

At 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle,SC)
Pours black and opaque, with a very good head.
Flavor: very floral, a bit 'wild', with Belgian yeast and light and medium roast malts. Medium+ strength. A bit sweet up front; clightly funky and slightly bitter aftertaste.
O: interesting and moderately complex but not my cup of tea.
Serving type: on-tap

3.78/5 rDev +8%

Bottle dated 2012
Pours opaque dark brown with 1/8 inch of khaki head that settles to a thin ring on top and leaves faint spotty lace.
Smell is somewhat subdued overall and is floral up front with faint dark cherry and bready malt on the finish.
Taste is of piney hops up front with grapefruit and a hint of honey on the back end.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
This one is hard to categorize. It has a strong hop presence initially with bold malt in the finish. Tart citrus notes and some honey sweetness round it off. A solid effort whatever style you choose to call it.
